Getting A Taste Of Sweet Tooth

Santiago Melli-Huber joins us to talk about Netflix's adaptation of the DC Comics book!

Netflix joins Amazon in boldly dropping a soft sci-fi story about an extremely contagious disease outbreak mid-covid pandemic…but at least Sweet Tooth, unlike Utopia, also has as its lead character a very cute little deer boy? New guest Santiago Melli-Huber joins us to talk about it. Around The Dial takes us to the premiere of We Are Lady Parts on Peacock, the finale of Pose on FX; then to AMC’s Kevin Can F**k Himself; to Sarah’s summer TV preview pick Mike Tyson: The Knockout (and related 30 For 30 episodes about Mike Tyson that might work better); and to The Boy In The Plastic Bubble, which we recently screened, watch-along style, with our high-pledge Patreon supporters (stay tuned for more details on future hangouts!). GuyIsDelightful challenges us to create TV news-based scripted series that actually feature and are about real news shows. Santiago makes his case for the Nonac induction of RuPaul’s Drag Race‘s Season 12 episode “World’s Worst.” Finally, we name the week’s Winner and Loser, and wrap up with a toes-up Game Time. Grab a sweet confection of your own and join us!
